"What is mind? No matter. What is matter? Never mind." - Thomas Hewitt Key, 1799-1875

About Us

This website is a bizarre combination between software and website development. However, it is not as strange as it first seems - trust me, there is some twisted logic behind it. In recent years, there have been two main things that have caught my attention: the first is GNU/Linux and Open Source; the other is the Internet, and the web pages that populate it. Fortunately, both are free (to an extent!) - indeed, that is probably part of their appeal.

With GNU/Linux and Open Source, it is often said that people try it because it is free, akin to free beer, yet people stay with it because it is free, akin to free speech. You need only look at one of the many popular GNU/Linux distributions, from Debian to Fedora, to see the huge range of choices - not just in what distribution you choose, but what office suite, instant messenger, web browser, desktop, feed reader and hundreds of other applications you use.

On the other side of things, the Internet now serves as one of the most powerful communication devices in the world. You can send e-mails to Germany from Malaysia, read an article on bananas, upload a picture of a tutu, or, of course, download a GNU/Linux distribution, so long as you have an Internet connection.

Perhaps the best part of the Internet is the ability to share your opinion. Remember, almost anything you read on this site is an opinion, not a fact - just because something is said on the Internet, it is not necessarily true. There is a vast array of writing and thoughts out there, and I highly recommend you go out there and read some, if only to gain a more balanced point of view.

Some like to think of the Internet as a book, which can be consulted to find facts. I prefer to think of the Internet as a discussion, and each website has a voice. Sometimes everybody will agree, sometimes there will be arguments - after all, a world where everybody thought the exact things would be extremely boring!

I hope those paragraphs have helped to show you what this website is about, because I have no idea. Enjoy.

Postscript: If you were looking for some low cost flying insects from the Internet, then this site probably isn't for you. Apparently, bees are attracted by bright colours, so taking a large, brightly coloured net to your local park may be your best bet.

Technical Note: This site is not fully compatible with Internet Explorer. Some pages may not display portions of text for a reason I have yet to fathom. However, you can make the text appear by highlighting it - after that, it should be visible, even if not highlighted. This affects the pages for individual news posts and images.

An even better solution would be to use another browser: Mozilla Firefox, SeaMonkey and Opera are some of the more popular.
